(NEWSER) – Talk about born to be wild. A 3-year-old boy in Florida headed out on the highway, looking for adventure, in a motorized toy car this week, narrowly avoiding traffic, ABC News reports.

A grownup motorist called 911 Wednesday after seeing the toddler attempting to merge onto the highway. According to WFLA, a number of drivers stopped to help the boy. “I was shocked,” one witness says. “Could have ended a lot differently if not for the people who stopped.”

Police arrived to find that drivers had used to cars to make a protective "blockade" around the boy, who was sitting in his own, much smaller car in the highway's median, ABC reports.
